Makeup Ideas That Are Actually Out-Of-This-World Cool

We've partnered with Almay® to show how you can achieve an elevated, yet ethereal look, with sophisticated, innovative, fun, and out-of-this-world products!

Your beauty routine is about to get an other-worldly update! With its elevated iridescent finish and a subtle glittery sheen, we're helping you tap into your supernova beauty powers with the NEW Almay® Cosmic Collection. Each piece within the collection is perfectly crafted to help you channel your inner ethereal vibe at lightyear speed. So whether it's adding a wash of stardust on your eyes, taking your lip look to another dimension, or creating a glistening galactic glow on your cheeks, see below for ways to incorporate these cosmic-powered products into your makeup bag.

Galactic Glow


Want cheeks like whoa? Use a multi-faceted highlighter to get that OTT glow. The Almay Make Them Jelly™ Hi-Lite (available in two shades, Unicorn Light and Mermaid Magic) has a unique shape-shifting jelly texture that not only makes this product fun to use, but fool-proof! Use your finger to gently tap on the high points of your cheeks and bridge of your nose for a look that instantly illuminates and gives off a sparkly shimmer. Plus, it's hypoallergenic and fragrance free so it's suitable to use on any skin type and the iridescent glitter is flattering on any skin tone.

Complement your ethereal look with a holographic shimmery eyeshadow, like the Limited Edition Almay Shadow Squad™ Eyeshadow Holographic in Illusionist and a mystical gloss like the Almay Goddess Gloss™ in Angelic for an all-over, stardust glow.

Prismatic Pout


Bow down to the new queen of lips! At least, that's what all your friends will be saying when you show up wearing this iridescent gloss on your pout. The Almay Goddess Gloss™ is available in 8 shades and the exact thing your makeup look has been begging for — the gloss is formulated with pomegranate, grape and raspberry oils for a holographic lip that actually keeps your lips feeling smooth and moisturized. You can either rock it solo for a truly prismatic shine, layer it over your favorite lipstick for added dimension, or mix and match for a custom look.

Bring the whole look home with a total monochromatic effect. Dust your eyes with the Almay Shadow Squad™ Eyeshadow Holographic in Pixie Kiss and your cheeks with a touch of Almay Make Them Jelly™ Hi-Lite in Unicorn Light for a trendy yet wearable look.

Starry Eyes


Be prepared to beam and gleam. Complete your cosmic approved look with the Limited Edition Almay Shadow Squad™ Eyeshadow Holographic collection. These holographic beauties are the cosmically-cool cousin of the OG Almay Shadow Squad™ Eyeshadow (available in 15 shades). Now you can play up your everyday look with this 4-in-1 iridescent shadow quad, available in 5 limited edition shades. The soft texture and rich color payoff allows you to mix and match for a totally customizable look. Each quadrant has a different iridescent effect, so they can be used alone for a standout look, or all together for a holographic ombré eye. And because the formula is ophthalmologist-tested it's suitable for sensitive eyes.

When playing with a bold, on-trend shade like Pegasus, try matching it with a contrasting pop of color to create an all over ethereal supernova effect. Try Almay Goddess Gloss™ in Halo for a subtle shine on your lips and Almay Make Them Jelly™ Hi-Lite in Mermaid Magic for a truly transcendent finish.
